Wonderful Beautiful Scotland

Updated on December 5, 2014

Own Your Own Part Of Beautiful Scotland

There is no doubt about it. Scotland has it all. (well, almost it all, if you like variable temperate weather).

History and heritage, proud friendly people; spectacular coastline and magnificent mountains; famous historical figures, current dynamic and inspirational individuals; world famous cities which all come together to present an eclectic collection of recognisable and surprisingly spectacular icons...

You can even have your own Scottish Title

It's true. You can have your own part of a title deed and be a part of this rich heritage. Lord (Laird) or a Lady.

Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland - This is my own snap of Urquhart Castle

Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland
Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland

On the banks of Loch Ness, this is a picture I took on a recent visit with my trusty Nikon D90.

Carlton Hill

Carlton Hill has a superb vantage point over the centre of Edinburgh as well as being the location of The City Observatory. There are panoramic and stunning views of the city and you are able to identify iconic buildings such as Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh Castle, the Robert Burns Monument, the Nelsons Monument and the Dugald Stewart Monument. To the North from Calton Hill you can view the vista over the City, and beyond the River Forth and onto the highlands.

EDINBURGH

The beautiful Capital Of Scotland. Steeped in history, fokelore, architecture, A modern bustling cosmopolitain city which has retained the magic of a traditional community proud of its past, present and future.

The Forth Rail Bridge

The Forth Bridge is a cantilever bridge spanning the Firth of Forth, 9 miles to the west of Edinburgh. It was officially opened on 4 March 1890 and spans a total length of 2,528.7 metres. The bridge is considered a listed building and the British Government has nominated it for addition to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Scotland.

Glen Coe - one of the most iconic views in the Highlands of Scotland

The view to the west through the glen is grand and daunting. A superb location to witness weather changes which impact dramatically on the landscape. Head through the Glen to the west to reach Fort William. To the south there are the magnificent peaks of Bauchaille Etive Mor followed and Buachaille Etive Geab, further west the Thee Sisters. In contrast, the North of the Glen is dominated by the imposing Aonach Eagach Ridge which can be crossed at the eastern end by the so-called Devils Staircase

      You're right! Beautiful Scotland! I spent a week there las year, within my 6 month visit to the UK, and enjoyed it very much. I tasted Irn Bru and a whole lot of whiskies, none like the Jura, at least for me! As a member of the McCulloch clan, I must go back and visit the Highlands, where they originally lived.

      Thanks for this lovely lens and for the memories!

However, since I have stopped by here again I will let you know I still think this lens is awesome with some beautiful photos that I wish I could go there and visit personally. Even though this doesn't count, here is another "thumbs up". Thank You!
